About the Program

eDiscovery and computer forensics are closely aligned in the proper handling and treatment of data. Without Forensics, the process of turning data into evidence would be extremely difficult, if not impossible. This course enables you to develop an understanding of the need for forensic process and the underlying technology that supports the evolving role of computer forensics in the legal process. It will also examine the recovery and review of complex IT networks, email evidence in litigation, and how counsel can work with IT to understand the types of hardware, software, data processing and data-storage devices the company uses. Basics on data management and storage functions of computers and cell phone will be discussed, along with proper methods for search, seizure and handling of electronic evidence.
